Use mineral spirits for solvent & cleanup.

Hi,what is the advantage of Total Boat Wood Finish over traditional varnish?
This product is more flexible than a standard spar varnish and will expand with the wood. It does tend to be a little softer than some varnishes.

We are installing a red oak bed in a 62 chevy pick up. will TotalBoat Marine Wood Finish darken the red oak?. OR which product do I need to use to out of all that you carry? The finished truck bed will be exposed to Arizona sun. Thank you DayLITE
It depends what type of look you are going for. The Marine Wood Finish comes in Clear or A orange/amber teak color. Regular varnishes like Epifanes or Totalboat Lust are an amber color. The two part varnishes like Totalboat Lust are clear, no tint.

WOULD THIS PROTECT WOOD OUT IN THE HOT SUN IN NEVADA. Does this come in clear finish.
It does come in a clear gloss and would protect the wood.
Bought this to be used on Red Cedar siding on a garage. Do we mix with linseed oil?
I can not be of any help on this question.I have only used it straight out of the can on the teak on my boat, I like it very muchworked easy.
No, it is fine out of the can. If spraying you will need to thin it with solvent. If on raw cedar it should also be thinned. If going over a previous finish you should call Jamestown for their recommendation.
Sorry but I only used it on my boat.Patrick
I'm sure you could find a finish specifically designed for cedar siding at Lowes or Home Depot for a fraction the cost.
I'm having a hard time getting the finish to dry. I live in Alabama and we have a lot of humity is time of the year. I have the room closed off with a/c running for 24 hrs but I put the finish on 48 hrs ago. Can you tell me what is the idea humity need to be for the finish to dry?
50-60% is good.
Hi,Wasn't terribly humid when we used it. We hung the items on a clothes line, I think just overnight.
I am on Chesapeake Bay and suffer similar humidity, especially during the summer, and I have also experienced slow drying on my bright work.. Fortunately (haha), I have enough bright work to coat that it takes me several days before I am ready to recoat. A little thinners should speed the drying process. Good luck.
I don't think I can help you because I live in Washington state and we don't have your humidity. Sorry!
Do you think that a dehumidifier would help the humity in the room is 60%?
Applied the product when humidity was 40-60% and temp was about 60 degrees, did not have drying problems
Is this product suitable for use on a teak swim platform?
Absolutely. Started with it on my trawler deck and it worked so well that I added it to the railings, swim platform, and other exterior teak. I sanded and bleached before the first coat and after that just added new layers when it appeared to get weathered. It would last a year, but I like the boat to always look crisp.
Yes it should work fine have usefully cedar ,birch and maple with no problem
1. Can this product be used over the top of an oiled timber?2. Will this product mark cushions which will be stored in a unit painted with this product?
Hi,I recently sold my trawler which was a TotalBoat poster child. Tired of the annual teak deck event, I put TBWF on it and it wore unevenly. I sanded down to new wood, oiled it, and then bleached the top for better adherence. It went on and stayed on great and I just put on a fresh coat for the next couple of years without having to sand. Since it "breathes", it lets water in and out, albeit in small amounts, and didn't blister or bubble.It worked so well, I sanded down all the rails and external teak and applied multiple coats on them, with some light sanding between the 3rd and 4th coat. While it never got that hard finish of varnish, it was a pretty color (teak TBWF) and never bubbled or blistered. I had just put on my second year's coat when I sold it, so I can't go much longer on how that went, but I did it like the deck, without sanding. After a year, the first application did have some wear spot in places grabbed a lot, and I suppose I could have touched them up during the year, but it was a loss of glass as opposed to a loss of color. This is a nifty oil and stain combination, so it never seems to be really dry. While I never had any come off on my feet or clothes from the deck or rails, I couldn't give you a 100% on that. It was used around the edges of my cushioned areas on the flybridge, but those cushions were also treated with Scotchguard, which may have provided some additional protection. High confidence level without a guarantee about sums it up...lol.Hope this tome helped.Jim
Barbara;1. I can not answer this, have not tried.2. I think you will be OK here, not totally sure but finish appear very hard.
I see no reason why this product cannot be used over oiled teak. I expect to do the same this season.
I think the best way to answer both questions is to state that the product dries like varnish. If the timber is oiled with linseed, then cleaning it with something like acetone should make it accept the marine wood finish. If you can make it accept varnish, it will accept the wood finish.If the cushions aren't vinyl with a plasticizer that softens varnish, they will be ok in a unit painted with wood finish.
This product exceeded my expectations.
I am using this product on a large wooden hand carved house address sign which has to withstand the rigors of severe winters and intense sunlight at 9,400 feet elevation. Time will tell, but I get the distinct impression that it is up to the task.
Worked where regular marine spar varnish failed!
We have refinished a table used for outdoor dining using every finish we knew of, including all kinds of UV protected marine types. Nothing ever worked in terms of the ability to stand up to constant sun and the elements. This product is as bright and strong as the day it was applied. No peeling. No color change. Terrific! Thanks Total Boat!
Good product for Mahogany too, but satin is not satin
I bought a quart of the Marine Wood Finish to seal and finish a weathered solid mahogany bench after a great deal of sanding prep. A couple of points for purchasers. As another reviewer pointed out this is not like a clear varnish or satin varnish. There is an orange yellow color out of the can. On very dark wood like end grain the yellowish tone shows up. On the reddish brown grain it did not. The can was labeled SATIN finish but after three coats: first two thinned with mineral spirits then a light sanding with 220 sandpaper and full strength final coat,the finish was very good and pretty deep, but if it were any glossier you could see your face in it. It also does a pretty good job of filling the open pores in Mahogany, but not as well as a pore sealer. But for an outdoor bench, the extra work and expense of filling pores was not necessary. That's a plus. The directions on the can are different than the directions on the website as far as thinning the initial coat. The label does not say mineral spirits is a suitable thinner - just says to use the Total Boat 100 proprietary thinner. I followed the web directions which said mineral spirits and that worked fine. Yes, I would recommend this product with the caveats above but NOT if you are looking for a satin finish.
Blue color dries, White is still wet 3 days.
Blue paint dries shortly after applied, White is still wet three days later.
Used this on my sailboat, looks good goes on easy.
I love this stuff. The only think I use on my brightwork!!
Puget Island, WA
Great teak finish!
Easy instructions. As long as you do the necessary prep work (sanding to 320, cleaning thoroughly with tack and mineral spirits), this finish goes on easy, smooths out nicely, and looks fantastic! I thinned the first coat to allow for better absorption. I'll never go back to regular teak oil again!

Great over bare wood, not good over epoxy
Applied it over epoxy, still sticky after several weeks; so I light sanded it, and that got it tolerable. But over bare wood, works great and leaves nice shine with just one or two coats, which dries to the point of not being sticky generally in 1 to 3 days.
San Jose Ca
I used this product for the first time on a 45 year old teak swim platform. The prep work was considerable and tedious getting years of old finishes off and then bleaching the wood. But when I started applying Total Boat the project became fun because the application is so simple and the results are just outstanding! Five coats of Total Boat (no sanding required between coats)and the finished product looks like the best varnish job I ever did. My only suggestion outside of the instructions on the can is to thin with mineral spirts to obtain good brushing characteristics (just like you would do with varnish). This is a great product, I can't wait to start the next project refinishing the handrails.
I bought this product twice
I used it on outdoor teak furniture. Chairs and table.
